Azure Analysis Services unlocks datasets with potentially billions of rows for non-technical business users to perform interactive analysis. Such large datasets can benefit from features such as asynchronous refresh.
We are pleased to introduce the REST API for Azure Analysis Services. Using any programming language that supports REST calls, you can now perform asynchronous data-refresh operations. This includes synchronization of read-only replicas for query scale out. Please see the blog postIntroducing query replica scale-out for Azure Analysis Servicesfor more information on query scale out.
